The hub of all cultural events held in Sibiu, well worth it to be... More

The square was transformed into a luminous and lively Christmas Village, complete with kiosks selling Vin Foarte, sweets, toys, meats, and Christmas kitsch.

Sibiu is one of the most beautiful cities and i am proud to call it my hometown. The town square is beautiful in any season. Go up the Tower for a 360 degrees view of the town!

When you pass through the arches of the tower of the elders (turnul Sfatului) after you pass the Liers Bridge and the small market, and you find yourself in that huge space surrouded by all those wonderful buildings you really are in the middel of something special. This is a piece of European Hystory so well preserved and real and... More

One of the main places the tourists are visiting in Sibiu. Excellent renovation for the 2007 events. You can spend one day here without becoming bored. Enjoy!

Just stroll around and soak up the atmosphere. Sibiu is lovely. Stay as close to its historic center as you can afford.

A nice place to find a bar for a drink and to hangout anytime of the day or night, and to just relax in the beautiful surroundings. Visit the nearby Brukenthal museum and wander around the lovely streets, if you like photography you will find plenty of chances for shots.
